Calvin Klein Recreates Iconic Clueless DressJun 29, 2010 @ 2:48 pm
Cher’s wardrobe in Clueless literally changed my life and apparently I’m not alone: Ilaria Urbinati, celebrity stylist and co-owner of the L.A. boutique Confederacy, gushed about her love of the film’s fashion when she was introduced to Calvin Klein Creative Director Francisco Costa. “I sort of geeked out on him, [explaining] how my formative-years love of Calvin Klein was partly based on the little white minidress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless,” Urbanati told us. “I reeanacted the entire scene with Cher and her father—‘Cher, what are you wearing?’ ‘A dress!’ ‘Says who?’ ‘Calvin Klein!’—and of course I said, ‘Francisco, you need to remake that dress!’” Costa was so taken with her passion that he went home, watched the scene on YouTube, had the original dress pattern dug out of the archives in Italy and had it re-created exclusively for Urbinati’s boutique. (Confederacy will begin carrying pieces from Costa’s Calvin Klein Collection this fall.) The dress, which retails for $915 and comes in Cher’s original white as well as a shade Urbinati describes as a “HOT” red, is being unpacked as we speak and will hit shopconfederacy.com in no time.
